Phylogenetic tree of plant acyltransferases (ATs) of known function and Actinidia members of the acyltransferase family. Previously published plant acyltransferase sequences from GenBank were used to identify genes from the Actinidia EST database using BLAST searches. Abbreviations for species and AT names are as follows: AdAT, Actinidia deliciosa AT; AeAT, A. eriantha AT; AcAT, A. chinensis AT; AaAT, A arguta AT; DAT, Catharanthus roseus deacetylvindoline 4-0-acetyltransferase, GenBank Accession No. AF053307; MAT, C. roseus minovincinine 19-hydroxy-O-acetyltransferase, AAO13736; BEAT, Clarkia breweri acetyl-CoA:benzylalcohol acetyltransferase, AF043464; SALAT, Papaver somniferum salutaridinol 7-O-acetyltransferase, AF339913; BEBT, Clarkia breweri benzoyl-CoA:benzyl alcohol benzoyl transferase, AF500200; MpAAT1, Malus pumila alcohol acyltransferase; AY707098; CM-AAT1, Cucumis melo alcohol acyltransferase, CAA94432; SAAT, Fragaria × ananassa alcohol acyltransferase, AAG13130; HCBT, Dianthus caryophyllus anthranilate N-hydroxycinnamoyl benzoyltransferase, Z84383; AnthocyaninAT Petunia frutescens anthocyanin acyltransferase, BAA93453; VAAT, Fragaria vesca alcohol acyltransferase, AX025504; BanAAT, Musa acuminata alcohol acyltransferase, AX025506; CER2, A. thaliana CER2 gene, X93080; HCT, Nicotiana tabacum hydroxyl-cinnamoyl transferase, AJ507825; HQT, Lycopersicon esculentum hydroxycinnamoyl CoA quinate transferase, AJ582652. Percentage bootstrap values (1000 bootstrap replicates) for groupings are given by each branch. Transf. on cladogram is transferase.
